Every city has tourist destinations, ranging from cheesy tourist traps to incredible word of mouth hidden gems. Yesterday I went to the Motown Museum in Detroit, and while it’s no secret, it was one of the best and most authentic guided tour activities I’ve ever experienced. The tour guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and dynamic. More importantly, the history of the place is fascinating, and the inspiring story of talented music industry pioneers and artists overcoming extreme racism through the universal language of good music will resonate forever. Don’t miss it if you’re in the Detroit area.
I went on this tour the other day, while it was painfully corny I thoroughly enjoyed stomping around Hitsville, USA.
